Wizards host Magic in a clash of styles, speeds
 
ESPN -  Field Level Media
 
A pedestrian-speed offense encounters a defense with no stop signs when the Orlando Magic duel the Washington Wizards for the second time this season Tuesday, this time on the Wizards' home court.
 
Both teams are coming off games that were symbolic of their seasons so far.
 
The Magic needed two free throws in the final seconds just to reach triple digits, but it was enough to beat visiting Golden State 100-96 on Sunday.
 
Meanwhile, the Wizards ran up 125 points on the road against the Los Angeles Clippers later that same day, but that was 25 points fewer than the home team in a 150-125 loss.
 
The teams met Nov. 17 in Orlando in a game played at the Wizards' pace. The Magic used a season-high-tying 15 3-pointers to produce a season-high point total in a 125-121 win.
 
Evan Fournier had five 3-pointers in the win, and was even one better (6 of 10) in Sunday's win over Golden State, when the Magic hit one-third of their treys (11 of 33) in the narrow win.
 
Despite that, Orlando was limited to 100 or fewer points for the fourth time in its past six games.
 
The Wizards haven't held anybody under 113 in their past 12 games. They just arrived home from a four-game western swing in which the opposition averaged 131.0 points.
 
Washington managed to win one of the games -- 140-132 at Phoenix -- and hope that Isaiah Thomas can build momentum off a nice run.

Questions: 

1.  What is meant by pedestrian-speed offense and which team does it refer to?    

2.  What is a defense with no stop signs and what does that mean?

What they’re getting at is that our offense is bad, but Washington’s defense is worse. Weird analogy

I think they’re moreso referring to pace of play. Washington wants to run and gun; We want to slow it down and run our half court offense to produce points.
